James Harden exploded in his Houston debut with 37 points, six rebounds, 12 assists, four steals, one block and four threes in 44 minutes.

He was 14-of-25 from the field and 5-of-6 from the line to make this an eight-cat line. Thunder GM Sam Presti might have to file charges for what Houston GM Daryl Morey did to him in the deal involving Harden. Even though it's only one game, owners that drafted Harden can probably give themselves a pat on the back.

LaMarcus Aldridge scored 26 points with 15 boards and two assists in Sunday's 110-99 win over the Kings.

He did go just 9-of-25 from the field and missed all three of his attempts from beyond the arc, but his owners won't be complaining about this line. Aldridge is coming off a 29-point, 16-board performance vs. the Thunder on Friday, and he is going to continue to be a beast as long his troublesome thumbs don't cause him any problems.

Stephen Curry scored a game-high 37 points to help the Warriors erase a 26-point deficit and steal a win in Boston on Sunday, tying the largest comeback in the NBA this season.

He went 14-of-22 from the field with five 3-pointers, and offset his five turnovers with four rebounds, five assists and one steal. He's been flirting with No. 1 fantasy status all season thanks to ridiculous games like this, and tonight's victory improved the Warriors' league-best record to 46-11.

Robert Covington suffered a right elbow contusion during Sunday's game vs. the Pacers and he will not return.

Luckily, the injury doesn't sound serious and we will consider Covington questionable to play against the Raptors on Monday. If Covington is forced to miss any additional time, more minutes will be available for players such as Hollis Thompson and Jerami Grant. Covington finished Sunday's game with 12 points, three boards and two 3-pointers in 24 minutes.

Matt Barnes (hamstring) is officially being listed as questionable for Monday's game vs. the Timberwolves.

We'll continue to monitor this situation closely, but it wouldn't make much sense for the Clippers to force Barnes to play in a game that they could probably win without him. If he does sit, Jamal Crawford will likely slide into the starting lineup, and he would see a small uptick in value. Stay tuned.

Ish Smith started the second half in place of Isaiah Canann on Sunday vs. the Pacers.

Canaan has struggled with his conditioning and hasn't exactly looked comfortable running the point in Philly, but head coach Brett Brown has been known to shake things up occasionally. Smith was averaging 6.3 points, 5.3 assists and 1.3 steals in his previous three performances with the 76ers, but owners in most leagues should use a wait-and-see approach here.

LeBron James racked up 37 points, four 3-pointers, eight rebounds, four assists, three steals and three blocks on Sunday, but he shot 15-of-35 from the field and 3-of-11 at the free throw line in an overtime loss.

LeBron became the first player since Truck Robinson in 1978 to score 37+ points while shooting under 30.0 percent on 10 or more free throw attempts. He was in disbelief after numerous misses in the clutch and took responsibility for the loss afterward, though fantasy owners will assuredly forgive the flaws in this statistical bonanza.
Mar 1 - 7:34 PM

C.J. Miles is starting the second half against the 76ers in place of Damjan Rudez.

Miles' foot has reportedly been an issue for a while now which is probably why he didn't start the game in the first place, but he is moving around the court fine and he doesn't appear to limited at all. We will let you know how he holds up after the game, but his owners shouldn't be concerned.
Mar 1 - 7:34 PM

Tristan Thompson erupted in 37 minutes during Sunday's OT loss, which he finished with 14 points, a season-high 19 rebounds, two steals and one block.

This was Thompson's first double-double in over a month and the defensive stats are atypical, but he continues to carve out borderline value in 9-cat leagues. He's playing more minutes than starting center Timofey Mozgov most nights and is worth scooping off the waiver wire if you're targeting rebounds and FG percentage.
Mar 1 - 7:15 PM

Randy Foye will move into the Nuggets' starting lineup on Sunday, sending Gary Harris to the bench.

Brian Shaw is shaking up his starting lineup by deploying Foye, Wilson Chandler and Kenneth Faried ahead of Harris, Joffrey Lauvergne and J.J. Hickson. Chaos reigns in Denver and Foye's starting job may be short-lived, but he's worth a speculative pickup in deep leagues in case it sticks.
Mar 1 - 6:55 PM

Kenneth Faried and Wilson Chandler will start Sunday's game vs. the Pelicans, sending J.J. Hickson and Joffrey Lauvergne back to the bench.

Faried has been a huge disappointment this season, and it's only gotten worse after the All-Star break with averages of 6.5 points and 6.3 boards in just over 21 minutes in his last four outings. It's a bold move from head coach Brain Shaw as Faried rarely plays center, but he simply has too much talent to not bounce back eventually. We will let you know how the Manimal does after the game. J.J. Hickson and Joffrey Lauvergne can be cut in most leagues following this news.
Mar 1 - 6:54 PM

James Harden kept up his torrid pace during Sunday's thrilling overtime win over the Cavs, notching 33 points (8-of-18 from the field, 15-of-18 from the line), eight rebounds, five assists, three steals, two blocks and five turnovers.

This was Harden's NBA-leading 26th game with more than 30 points, and this performance will certainly help his case for MVP-honors. Harden also logged 42 minutes tonight, which would suggest that his ankle injury is no longer an issue. He's averaging 22.6 points, 8.8 assists, 1.2 steals and 2.6 three-pointers, since the All-Star break, while shooting 84.2 percent from the charity stripe on 11.4 attempts per game. Simply put, he’s a beast.
